“food, service, atmosphere all superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

We took our daughter out for dinner and she wanted to try this relatively new restaurant near her place. I made a reservation even tho it was a Monday night and I'm glad I did - when we arrived it was packed! The room was decorated for Christmas and looked beautiful.

The owner greeted us warmly and the servers we all very gracious. The food was excellent, with lots of vegetarian dishes on the menu. We particularly enjoyed the butterbeans and the slow roasted lamb. Greek dancing to Zorba music was fun. Our son-in-law was working late and couldn't join us so I got a gift certificate for them to come another time.

Came here after seeing the #1 rating on TripAdvisor. The service was exceptional. All the staff were very genuine and attentive; really made you feel at home. The food was great and the saganaki was amazing! Great atmosphere and the greek dancing was fun. Will definitely be back!

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

This restaurant has excellent food and even better service. The two brothers are more than hospitable. The food had a fresh, unique taste. It was obviously made from scratch. Best Saginaki I ever had. Momma Marie's bakalav is amazing. I can't wait to go back.

“Best Greek in Victoria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

By far the best Greek food I have found in Victoria. Everything from the bread to the dolmades is home made. Keep up the great work.

“Great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Our food was excellent, the staff friendly and we were even treated to the Zorba dance because it was one of the Uncle's birthday.
